Hi,
I have this client who wants to stop using his built in domain admin account. The thing is that when i disable it. There is a web page that doesn't start on his intranet web server.
A soon as i enable it, the web page comes back.
I rechecked the security settings but with no luck.
Any thought IIS 6.0 and Windows 2003.
Any thought on that
Thanks

dont disable the domain admin account - rename it, give it a complex password, and give him another account with high level permissions

Do any of the application pools use the Domain Admin account as the activeation ID?

Or a service that is used by that webpage that is running on the built -in admin account.
